Hard to believe it's here already but Australia's first Group 1 race of 2016/17 is set down for Caulfield this Saturday.
Among those returning for the weight-for-age Memsie Stakes is Australian Derby winner Tavago, to be ridden by Ben Melham.
Three of the past four Melbourne Cup winners have resumed in the Memsie, so it's a race to watch with an eye to the spring.
And adding further intrigue will be the reappearance of the reigning cup winner, Prince of Penzance, with Harry Coffey aboard.
Who will claim the prize? Tony Kneebone is tipping Black Heart Bart (pictured) and his Memsie preview will lead this week's Winning Post.
Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the meetings at Geelong and Scone plus fields, colours and selections for Canberra and Ipswich.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Caulfield in Melbourne, Rosehill in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, Doomben in Brisbane and Belmont in Perth.
Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Donald (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Beaumont-Newcastle (NSW edition) and Gold Coast (Queensland edition), as well as fields, tips, ratings and/or colours for other TAB Saturday cards.
On Sunday we've got liftout formguides for four more TAB meetings plus fields, ratings, tips and colours for a stack more Sunday and Monday programs.
Don't forget Winning Post now carries trackwork reports for all four Melbourne training tracks, all three in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide and a general Brisbane report.
Away from the form, we've got news columns from Queensland, NSW, six Victorian districts, SA and Tasmania.
Our readers have their say on page 4, while further back in the book Shane Templeton reminisces, Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport, Tony Kneebone brings you his Snippets column and Number Cruncher delivers the stats that matter.
Winning Post costs $5 and is available Thursday afternoon in selected Melbourne newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
